The Desert Foxes had the worst title defence in the AFCON tournament. Coach Djamel Belmadi's side also failed to qualify for the World Cup as they were beaten by Cameron. They went into the tournament as the favourite, not just as the defending champion but also as the FIFA Arab Cup winner; however, they failed to live up to expectations.
Algeria were on 35 unbeaten runs before heading into the tournament but failed to qualify from the group stage as they finished rock bottom in a group that included Sierra Leone and Equatorial Guinea. Just one point from a possible nine, scoring just once in that process.
Algeria have won six and drawn once since the defeat against Cameron for the World Cup.
The Desert Foxes are rated 41st in the world according to FIFA and have won five times in the last five matches.
